2014 Puligny-Montrachet Paul Pernot et ses Fils

Paul Pernot quietly produces among the finest of white Burgundy wines from among the finest of its white wine vineyards and at a prices that are for this hallowed ground, at least, still within reason. And their village level Puligny is a most useful and delicious wine what with pristine Chardonnay aromas that channel the very gist of white Burgundy with aspects of wet stone and soil and then a hint of flower and citrus; firm as the rocky soils on which it is grown and Puligny in every sense, at once delicate and powerful and dry with that firm stony underpinning, full of nerve and verve to the finish.

2014 Mâcon-Lugny Les Charmes Chardonnay

The Les Charmes vineyard near the village of Lugny in the Mâconnais region of southern Burgundy is prized for its exceptional southern exposure and for the age of its vines, averaging some 40 years of age on the whole. Around here, we prize its production as among the surest of bets for value in dry white wine. Vinified entirely in stainless steel and bottled sans bois, that is, unlumbered, 100% unencumbered by oak, at the nearby Cave de Lugny; green-gold in color, the wine is fresh and vibrant with aromas that would suggest hazelnut, citrus flower and acacia honeys on a foundation of refreshing summer rains on limestone; medium-bodied, ample in weight, with a clean, crisp and lasting flavor on the finish. Given the consistently excellent quality and its extremely fair price, it’s not much wonder that Mâcon-Lugny Les Charmes Chardonnay is among the best-selling of white Burgundies in the United States!

2014 Bourgogne Chardonnay Réserve BOUCHARD Père & Fils

Settled in the heart of the Côte de Beaune since 1731, Bouchard Père & Fils know well the qualities of the terroirs of this southern section of the Côte d'Or. For their Bourgogne Blanc Réserve, they have selected fine Chardonnay fruit from various parcels of vineyard for their complementary qualities. The result is a delicious if less expensive white Burgundy that would serve as a worthy entrée to the far more expensive white wines from the Côte de Beaune. Pale yellow gold in color with aromas of citrus and stone and just a subtle toast from oak; at once smooth and round and crisp and compelling on the tongue with a fine delicate flavor, and a freshness and satisfyingness that belie its ever so reasonable price.

2011 Corton Clos des Cortons Domaine Faiveley

Good deep red. A bit darker on the nose than the grand crus from Gevrey-Chambertin, offering explosive aromas of crushed raspberry, black cherry, exotic spices and a touch of smoke. Compellingly rich and seamless in the mouth, with terrific sappy verve to the urgent flavors of red berries, minerals and game. The very long, slowly rising finish boasts outstanding energy and thrust and saturates the mouth with sweet perfume. Rated (93-96). - Stephen Tanzer, Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar January/February 2013
